Description

Ulster Museum is home to a stunning tapestry depicting key scenes from every episode of hit TV show Game of Thrones.

Taking around three months to make, the tapestry arrived at the museum highlighting battles, betrayals, victories and deaths from seasons one to six. Each week, the tapestry will be added to with scenes from the ongoing season seven, taking it to its final size of 77m.
The tapestry was woven and hand-embroidered from material provided by Thomas Ferguson Irish Linen in Banbridge, one of the last surviving mills in Northern Ireland, and contains over 250,000 threads placed by hand.
Game of Thrones has been filmed in Northern Ireland since 2010, depicting the mythical Seven Kingdoms through beautiful areas of Northern Ireland such as the Causeway Coast, Castle Ward, Cushendun Caves, and Murlough Bay.
The exhibition will open to the public on the 22 July and will run for the duration of the series and at least six months afterwards.
Fans can also view the tapestry online at www.ireland.com
